About Me

It all began when a supportive teacher asked me to give a speech for my graduating class.

I said yes but was really thinking...  I'll choke, sweat &

probably stammer.

Instead... I wrote, memorized, and prepared.

When the moment finally came, I stepped out front.

The whole room went black. Or, so it seemed.

I could hear my voice, but I couldn't see a thing.

Regardless, I forged ahead. Before I knew it I was done.

I could see people were smiling, clapping, and somehow

I had made it through.

Someone had believed just a little bit more in me.

Because of that, my life has never been the same.
